Provider Biography
Keri E. Lunsford MD, PhD, FACS is an Assistant Professor of Surgery and a liver transplant and hepatobiliary surgeon on faculty at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and a member of the Center for Immunity and Inflammation. Dr. Lunsford received MD and PhD degrees from The Ohio State University as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program, and she completed general surgery residency at Duke University followed by fellowship in multi-organ abdominal transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She is certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. Prior to joining the faculty at Rutgers, she was on faculty at Houston Methodist Hospital where she played a key role in the groundbreaking protocol for liver transplant for intrahepatic cholaniocarcinoma, and she is internationally recognized as an expert in this field. Her clinical interests include liver transplant oncology, simultaneous liver kidney transplantation, and liver transplant futility. Dr. Lunsford has received funding from the Association of Women Surgeons and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) NIDDK for her translational research in the mechanism and impact of pre-transplant immune dysfunction in liver transplant recipient outcomes. She serves on several national and international committees and is well-published in the field of transplant surgery and immunology.
